My teacher has a blue crab in a tank. He bought it from a bait shop, and came with it's claws taken off. They're not hard to keep.

I wouldn't do it. Too much risk for nothing. They only hide behind rocks or dig themselves into the sand.

I honestly have no idea. They do grow back though, when it molts.

Oh my goodness. Blue crab are freaking demons! Those things are so hardcore. I catch them regularly in crab traps and those things are meaaann and tough. Well catch stone crab and they'll just be like chillin. And the blue crab will be running around and swiping at you claws out in defensive position. You try to go around the back but they don't let their back turned to you and keep you in front of them. Then when you get close they snap at you! Gotta have respect.
